Brunel University London calls application for Brunel International African Poetry Prize. The Prize works closely with the African Poetry Book Fund (APBF) and since its inception, most of the poets who have been nominated and/or won this award have published chapbooks with the African Poetry Book Fund series of ‘New Generation Chapbook Box Sets’. The poetry competition is aimed at the development, celebration and promotion of poetry from Africa.


The Brunel International African Poetry Prize is a major annual poetry competition with a prize of £3000.


  • The Prize is open to poets who were born in Africa, or who are nationals of an African country, or whose parents are African.
  • It is for ten poems exactly in order to encourage serious poets. These poems may, however, have already been published.
  • Only poets who have not yet had a full-length poetry book published are eligible.
  • Furthermore, poets who have self-published poetry books or had chapbooks and pamphlets published are eligible to submit for this prize.

Applicants must send the entries via email only to [email protected]
